6:31 pm
good evening. major new developments tonight in the asiana airline crash at sfo. today, the ntsb says the pilot tried to abort the landing at the last second and attempted to go around and land again. it shows the approach of the aircraft was slower than the desired target speed. the two people who were killed were two 16-year-old girls from china and they are looking into if one of them was run over by a fire truck. the ntsb will be out here for at least a week. >> an amateur photographer was filming at the right time. >> look at that one. look how his nose is up in the air. >> o had h my god. oh, it is an accident. >> oh and you are filming it, too. >> oh my god. >> oh, no.
6:32 pm
>> oh my god. oh my god. oh my god. >> you filmed the whole thing. >> oh lord have mercy. >> that is the voice of fred hayes. he and his wife were taking a walk yesterday morning and decided to film planes coming in. tomorrow, there will be an autopsy done to determine if one of the 16-year-old girls killed was run over by a fire truck. the girl was found near the evacuation chute bite left wing. the injuries are consistent with being run over. >> that news came as a shock to the girl's family. a photographer in china captured the moment the family of wang ang rin jia found out. the officials believe they were sitting in the back of the
6:33 pm
plane. >> we want to show you pictures of the flight data recorders. they were on a red eye flight to washington, d.c. investigators are now carefully examining the data. kpix-5 has more on that information and what the pilots were doing just seconds before impact. linda? >> well, ann, federal investigators learned a lot more about the final moments before the crash landing. it turns out the pilot had a critically small window to correct their approach before slamming into the runway. >> in this exclusive video given to cnn an eyewitness records flight 214 seen on the right as it crash lands. it skids. >> oh my god. oh it is an accident. >> reporter: it flips on said side and bursts into flames. >> the ntsb investigators say the flight data and voice recorders are giving them the
6:34 pm
clues. >>en who ever the crew -- one of the crewmembers called for more speed. >> i will tell you that the speed was significantly below 137 knots. and we are not talking about a few knots. >> reporter: then, four seconds before crashing the sound of a stick shaker is heard. it has been activated. >> this is both an oral and a physical queue to the crew they are approaching a stall. it is called a stick shaker. but there is a yoke that the pilot is holding and it vibrates and it is telling them a stall is approaching. >> reporter: 1 1/2 seconds before impact to avoid crashing a crewmember calls for a go around. >> that means they want to not land but apply power and go around and try to land again. >> reporter: but the plane landed short on the runway. the tail section sliced off as it hit the sea wall.
6:35 pm
pieces scattering throughout the field. >> so, based on those recordings and what you just explained are you finding preliminary findings pointing to pilot error? >> what i will tell you is that the ntsb conducts thorough investigations. we will not reach a determination of probable cause in the first few days that we are on an accident scene. we want to make sure that we gather all of the evidence and the facts early in the investigation. >> reporter: ntsb investigators still need to look at the flight crews training, experience, and interview them. they will also exam evidence, survey the debris field, look at the engines and the condition of the aircraft. just some of the parts needed to 0 in on a cause. >> everying is on the table right now. it is too early to rule anything out. >> reporter: it is going to be a painstaking investigation. they have a lot of evidence to go through, in fact, most of today some of the investigator his to wait for the hazardous
6:36 pm
materials to be removed from the crash site before they could really dig in. ann? >> it seems in their first day of their investigation the ntsb learned a great deal. have they saided when they might offer an update on the investigation? >> they did not. they did say they gave us a lot of information based on what they heard and examined on the flight deck recorder and voice recorders but as far as specifics they said not until their next update which they did not give us a date or a time on when that might be when they can give us more information. >> thank you. the ceo of asiana airplanes does not believe it was caused by mechanical failure. [speaking in foreign language] >> that is the press conference at the president's headquarters in seoul korea. he did say the pilots all had thousands of hours of experience. the ntsb plans to talk to the
6:37 pm
flight crew tomorrow. asiana airlines identifies the pilot at controls as ming. he spent his career with the airline. he was one of four pilots on the plane that rotated two- person shifts during the 10 1/2 hour flight. this is no information available on the other pilots. federal aviation investigators are giving us a look at the damage done to the boeing 777. the peculiars make it even more amazing people survived. this is from the twitter feed. this is the first look at the destruction inside of the plane. the force of the impact buckled some of the seats. you can get a sense of how violent the crash landing was. the investigation could take up to a year. ntsb investigators spent part of the day combing through the debris field. they were paying attention to the far end of runway 28 left. their goal is to identify what is called the 4 corners of the
6:38 pm
wreckage. the nose, tail, wing tips. >> they are going to be looking through the wreckage field to identify important parts, they have documented the locations of rest of the two fatalities. they are going to be working now to document the seating positions of those who were injured. >> what is collected will tell the investigators how the plane itself performed during the crash. today, san francisco mayor praised the swift actions from the 225 first responders in yesterday's incident that they call remarkable and miraculous. >> with the injuries they notified us they are treating they are saying but for that triage work that was done at the crash site some of the victims would not have survived as they are now. >> as you know, hospitals all over the bay area treated injured passengers yesterday. sanfrancisco general 17 patients remain hospital, six
6:39 pm
in critical condition. including one child. 11 are hospitals, two critical condition, and four are still at cpnc hospital. we have the story of one crash survivor who has five family members in the hospital including her 4-year-old son. >> when i see the picture with the fire, wow, it is horrible. >> reporter: she speaks calmly outside of the hospital about the nightmare she just went through. >> the plane tail touched the ground directly. >> you felt that? >> i did. yeah. yeah. >> reporter: she and her son were sitting in the back of the plane next to a hole that ripped open. large enough for two. >> hi the time to walk out because it hit close to my seat. so, i take my baby and just take on my carry on baggage and walked out. >> many were not as lucky. of all of the hospitals that took in the injured patients sf general took the most.
6:40 pm
today, its chief of surgery described the injuries. >> a huge amount of spine catchers, some of them include paralysis. >> the most critical had head trauma and bleeding. >> we saw patients with severe road rash as suggesting they were dragged. we are not sure if those patients were outside of the plane as&this is what happened to them -- plane and this is what happened to them but they are going to be all right. >> one passenger said the seats in front of her collapsed and came at her. she was sitting in her seat. that is how she got her injuries. >> reporter: surgeons last night said they were running low on blood, they have been do egg lot of surgeries. many patients need multiple surgeries. >> i feel lucky. >> reporter: she was sitting in the back of the plane that turned out to be the most dangerous area for passengers in this crash. her son does have a broken leg but all of her five family
6:41 pm
members on board are expected to survive. >> i will fly again. maybe i need some time. >> reporter: in san francisco, kpix-5. >> and, the two chinese teen who's died in the crash were heading to a study abroad program in southern california. at west valley christian church in the san fernando valley. church members mourned their death. they were going to spend the summer with host families learning english. instead, they will return home -- will return to china. their consulates opened today to deal with visas and passports. many of them came in to get their paperwork in order. the ntsb wants to meet with the students to get statements. another runway reopens at sfo after yesterday's crash. but things are far from back to normal. the cancellations and delays for people trying to fly.

6:55 pm
helps the pilot lineup with the runway while the glide scope indicator shows that the plane is too high and too low. but,asiana did not have it to follow as has been confirmed the instrument on runway 28 left is out of service and will remain out of service until august 7th. now, the flight school in hayward, simulating a landing on sfo's 28 left without depending on the glide scope indicator. like other flights landing, he still has other options. >> we have a piece of equipment, glide scope that is out. we have to evaluate. if the pilot used it. and on the airport property and they were flying the approach. if they were using automation. pilots have their own experienced eyes. >> we would be able to judge
